4.1ANSI assessments will include the requirements of ISO 14066 starting on April 15, 2012. The attached document serves as guidance for VVBs transitioning from IAD MD 6, Annex A to ISO 14066. IAF MD 6, Annex A will continue to be mandatory for ISO 14065 accreditation until such time as it is removed and/or edited by the IAF.
4.2ISO 14066 for use in GHG programs and use in marketing claims by the VVB
4.2.1GHG programs may require that VVBs undergo or maintain professional requirements in addition to the requirements of ISO 14066. Such requirements, where applicable, take precedence. VVBs shall not be permitted to make claims implying that ANSI has accredited individual persons or validation and/or verification teams against ISO 14066.

How is accreditation like an onion?
